    Florida passes Plan for Racially based Academic goals

    http://tampa.cbslocal.com/2012/10/12...cademic-goals/


    Palm Beach, Fla. (CBS TAMPA) The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race.
    On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent. It also measures by other groupings, such as poverty and disabilities, reported the Palm Beach Post.

    I do not like the race issue. I would like it to be socioeconomic status, but there are no laws to protect the poor kids in general. I would hope that the black community is outraged by this law. It implies something horrible.

    I can assure you that whatever horrible it implies is supported by even more horrible facts.

    You would think they would, but then they would actually have to address the issue of why black performance is so low in schools.

    Maybe because people only want 66% of them to be acceptably literate?

    Democrat politicians, of course, so they can keep their votes.
